I think IA made the right action by suspending both pilot and the co-pilot.

This is not the first time. I remembered Turkish Airlines was fought by two pilots in the air back years ago.

Im pretty sure there was a knifing in the 70s on some Asian carrier. I seem to remember someone got shot in an altercation in the cockpit too, and not a hijack etc.
